Would not make this again.
I love cream cheese everything but this wasn't a good use of it. Butter spritz cookies are far better. 2 stars

This is nothing more than flavored flour dust. Nothing to hold it together. Can\\\'t pack it into a press. Waste of time! 1 star

Would make this again.
Very simple recipe. The 1.5 ounces of cream cheese is not a's JUST enough to give the cookies a bit of a flavor and a soft texture. This works very well with my cookie press, no problems. 5 stars
